As reported, a respectable amount of snow fell on southern New England over the last 24 hours. Luckily, not nearly as much as they were forecasting. Even so, it was a quiet, peaceful day where kids got a much-anticipated snow day and most folks stayed put until driveways and streets could be cleared of the fluffy white stuff.
Having grown up in Northeast Ohio, snow really doesn't faze me. However, where I currently reside, it seems to make people very nervous. Of course it doesn't help that the first big storm of the season gets way too much media attention. Hopefully after a couple more snow events, everyone will relax and remember that it is winter, after all.
